Prevention of torsional vibration on wheelsets

How measurement systems from imc increase locomotive safety with real-time data analysis

Torsional vibration of wheelsets presents a challenge in rail transport. The torsional vibration of a wheelset reduces traction and leads to increased wear, also termed “rolling contact fatigue”. Together with the experts of the DNV-GL Maritime Advisory, imc has developed a rollover protection system (Torsional Vibration Limiting System, abbreviated TVLS). It is characterised by its flexibility, performance and availability.
